125<para><application>OpenOffice</application> does not create a directory
126when you extract the <acronym>TAR</acronym> ball. Create a build directory
127and extract the source with the following commands:</para>
128
129<screen><userinput><command>mkdir OOo-build &amp;&amp;
130cd OOo-build &amp;&amp;
131tar -zxvf ../OOo_&openoffice-version;_source.tar.gz</command></userinput></screen>
132
133<para>Optionally, untar and move the gpc files, and apply the downloaded
134patches:</para>
135
136<screen><userinput><command>tar -zxvf ../gpc231.tar.Z &amp;&amp;
137mv gpc231/* external/gpc &amp;&amp;
138rmdir gpc231 &amp;&amp;
139for patch in ../openoffice-&openoffice-version;-*.patch
140 do patch -Np1 -i $patch
141 done</command></userinput></screen>
142
143<para>STLport looks for the c++ headers in the wrong location. Put a
144temporary symlink in place to satisfy STLport:</para>
145
146<screen><userinput><command>ln -sf /opt/gcc-&gcc3-version;/include/c++/&gcc3-version; /usr/g++-v3</command></userinput></screen>
147
148<para>OpenOffice fails to build with gcc-3.4.1. Set your path to
149include gcc-&gcc3-version;:</para>
150
151<screen><userinput><command>export PATH_HOLD=$PATH &amp;&amp;
152export PATH=/opt/gcc-&gcc3-version;/bin:$PATH</command></userinput></screen>
153
154<para>If you want to optimize the build, edit
155<filename>solenv/inc/unxlngi4.mk</filename> and add the desired optimization
156flags to the <envar>CFLAGSOPT</envar> variable. Some users have reported
157problems with <parameter>-fomit-frame-pointer</parameter>. The best option is
158to not use any custom optimizations. The following command removes an incorrect
159<parameter>-mcpu</parameter> option in the above file:</para>
160
161<screen><userinput><command>sed -i "s:\-mcpu=pentiumpro::" \

163
164<para>Configure <application>OpenOffice</application> using the following
165commands. You may build install sets for specific languages based on your
166preferences. Supply a comma separated list to the <envar>--with-lang=</envar>
167switch. If a particular component is not available in the language of your
168choice, the default will be US English. If you need other languages, be sure
169to add <parameter>ENUS</parameter> to the list; otherwise the build will
170fail:</para>
171
172<screen><userinput><command>cd config_office/ &amp;&amp;
173./configure --with-lang=ENUS \
174 --with-dict=ENUS --without-fonts \

176 --with-system-freetype &amp;&amp;
177cd ..</command></userinput></screen>
178
179<para><application>OpenOffice</application> fails to compile if
180<command>umask</command> is set to something exotic. The build can also
181fail if the <envar>LANG</envar> or <envar>LC_ALL</envar> environment
182variables are set. Use the following commands to change your
183environment accordingly:</para>
184
185<screen><userinput><command>umask 0022 &amp;&amp;
186unset LANG LC_ALL</command></userinput></screen>
187
188<para>Compile <application>OpenOffice</application> using the following
189commands:</para>
190
191<screen><userinput><command>./bootstrap &amp;&amp;
192bash -c "source LinuxIntelEnv.Set.sh; dmake"</command></userinput></screen>
193
194<para>If you have downloaded localized help content <filename>tgz</filename>
195files, you will need to untar them to the appropriate directory as shown
196below and then recreate the installation set:</para>
197
198<screen><userinput><command>cd solver/645/unxlngi4.pro/pck &amp;&amp;
199for i in ../../../../../helpcontent_*_unix.tgz

206
207<para>Install <application>OpenOffice</application> using the following
208commands to install the US English language set. To install a localized
209version, replace the 01 with the international telephone country code for
210your country:</para>

212<screen><userinput><command>cd instsetoo/unxlngi4.pro/01/normal &amp;&amp;

219
220<para>If you have installed <xref linkend="desktop-file-utils"/> and use
221<application>KDE</application>, there is no furthur configuration
222necessary. If you use <application>Gnome</application>, you should copy
223the <filename>*.desktop</filename> files to
